Technology ~ iOS 7 for my iPhone 4S, 09/18/2013

Installed Apple’s new operating system [iOS 7] on my iPhone 4S yesterday. I experienced several errors in getting the file because of server overload. I began my quest for this file as soon as it was available–1:00 p.m. EDT.

I like the clean, crisp look. Because folders can now be multiple pages,

I’m happy to have safely finished this ride. I began at 6:45 a.m. and finished at 11:42 a.m. I only stopped for traffic lights. I ate and drank on the bike. The US 421 leg of the ride, between Lillington and Dunn, slowed me the most because of the long climbs.

I think the graphic says all that is needed for this article. I plan to ride a much longer distance next weekend. After that, medium length rides as I get closer to the October 5th Metric Century.

10/05 Metric Century Tng. ~ Fri. P.M., 09/06/2013, Another Strava Challenge…

Moved up the leaderboard, from 10th [3:40] to 6th [3:12]. The top 6 riders are only separated by 12 seconds. This evening I had cyclist, runners, & walkers. I rode to be courteous.
